Mountain Nursery Color

I am so envious of all of this color! Nothing is doing well around here this year as we went from a cool, slightly rainy spring to a super, duper, high heat, high humidity, full blast summer. This was my favorite nursery to visit up in the mountains of North Carolina. It is a little pricey, however, all the "rich summer people" as we "locals" call them can afford it. There were a few things that were not too bad in price, and I might pop back in there the next time I go to visit my grandmother. Plus they might have some fall items I can also drool over!










I loved walking around there with my grandmother as we both have a love of flowers, and it was a fun thing to do.  Plus I actually ran into someone that works there that I had been in school with a long, long time ago (too many years to say!) so it was great catching up, finding out who she married, how many kids they have, etc.. She loves working there which would be a huge problem for me as I'd want to buy a lot of everything!  Now, I guess I'd better go do my evening walk about, sigh........gardening is a long process!

I'm glad you can have this time with your grandmother and make memories together - what a treat!

I am contemplating heading up towards the Blue Ridge mountains on the border of NC and N.GA, but that might be another year or so, but I'm finding myself looking forward to the cooler weather and the snow ;-)

Happy weekend! Enjoy your Granny and the flowers!

I worked at a nursery for a couple summers. It was a huge problem. :)

Happy gardening!

What a beautiful nursery! For me it would also be very difficult (or expensive!) to work there, I fear!
Very nice that you could enjoy your visit there together with your grandma (so your time at school can not be sooooooo long ago!)
Have a nice week, liebe Gruesse, Monika
